I’m happy to be a part of The Bearden Project because I’ve been prompted to learn more about Romare Bearden’s life and his oeuvre. Bearden’s innovations lead to the conditions that allow my work to thrive. He was able to extend his unique commentary to several different formats, and he seemed to be adroit at working in all of them. In particular, I was surprised and excited to learn of his life as an editorial cartoonist.
